Mooncake (月餅)

It was full moon last Saturday.

My dad came back from China during the Mid-Autumn Festival (Zhongqiu Festival) there. For our souvenirs, he bought many mooncakes. I've got the small ones but big ones were 10 cm (4 inches) in diameter! Wow!!! I don't think I can eat huge ones since mooncakes are rich and heavy like shortbread: a thick filling usually made from lotus seed paste is surrounded by a relatively thin (2-3 mm) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs. Inside the cake were nuts and dried fruit!

Today, the weather is super fine after the typhoon! My boyfriend said he's gonna take me to a nice restaurant tonight. He-he!

Also, this coming holiday, we are going to go to a hot spring. Yay!

Have a nice weekend ;)
